Came to Ldn for a couple of nights for business, I work for a boutique-style investment house based in Chelsea and thought would give a boutique-style hotel a chance this time. Must say was highly impressed. Hotel has is positioned really nicely on the river (had a good Thames view), and rooms were about four times the size of the best 5 *s I have stayed in in New York and Tokyo but a quarter of the price. This is unusual for London, where I am used to not getting value for money. Met the proprietor in the restaurant, he has clearly cut a unique style for the hotel - elegant, eclectic and sophisticated yet comfortable. Food in the restaurant top quality, and good value too. I think this hotel, restaurant and spar/gym (I am a keep fit guy and was impressed to see a very well equipped gym and managed an early morning river run) has great promise. Will be coming back, especially given a lot of my business is in Chelsea with hedge fund guys and this is a 5 minute cab ride away.
